Title : Cultivation of oyster mushroom (Pleurotus species) by using different agriculture and other waste as a substrate

Abstract:

Pleurotus species (Oyster Mushroom) is a very popular mushroom due to their stability of cap, stem and longer shelf life. Pleurotus sp. belongs to class Basidiomycetes and order Agaricales. Cultivation of oyster mushroom is a world-wide mainly in Asia, India, Europe, Africa and China. Edible Mushrooms are capable of colonizing and degrading a large variety of lignocellulosic substrates and other waste generated primarily by agriculture, woodland and food processing industries. Oyster mushroom has medicinal properties it contains 80-90% moisture, 3% protein, 0.3-0.4% fat and 1% minerals and vitamins. Special advantage is in this oyster mushroom vitamins are not destroyed by cooking, freezing and drying. Oyster mushroom is a good source of vitamins and minerals. Mainly vitamin B are found in mushroom such as riboflavin (B2), folate (B9), thiamine (B1), panthothenic acid (B5) and niacin important for healthy brain. Oyster mushrooms have nutritionaland medicinal benefits for humans. Mushroom cultivation is a biotechnological method which is economically feasible for the processing of various lignocellulosic wastes. The purpose of this study was to assess the appropriateness of waste paper, wheat and rice straw, corn cob, banana leaves, hull, waste cotton are used as a cultivation of oyster mushroom.
